Mark Glenshaw is widely known for his work on owls in Forest Park in St. Louis. He will be speaking at the February membership meeting Feb. 21, 7pm at Boone Electric Cooperative (1413 Rangeline) in the Amp Room. See the full lising in the Events calendar.

Do you ever see or hear an owl in your neighborhood and want to experience more of these beautiful birds?  Well award-winning naturalist Mark H.X. Glenshaw aka “The Owl Man” is here to help.  Mark has studied Great Horned Owls in Missouri since 2005. He gives dozens of lectures on the owls all over Missouri and Illinois and leads scores of owl prowls each year.  In addition to this, he helps people find owls in their neighborhoods whether in subdivisions, city neighborhoods, pocket parks or large public parks.  Mark’s talk will show which owls you are most likely to see or hear, where to look for them, how to look for them in a safe and ethical manner, what to listen for, and the importance of research and collaboration.  To learn more about Glenshaw’s work, visit his website at
